Netflix have announced Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield will be starring in new series Sex Education set for release in 2019.

Butterfield, previously seen in films Ender’s Game and Hugo, will play Otis Milburn in what’s being described as a ‘charming coming-of-awkward-age dramedy’.

Anderson, known for The X-Files and The Fall, will be playing Otis’s mother Jean who is a sex therapist, so you can probably imagine how the awkward will slot into events.
